SDL Knowledge Center 2016 SP3

The Knowledge Center team is excited to release SDL Knowledge Center 2016 SP3.

This release includes SDL Knowledge Center Content Manager (12.0.3).

Knowledge Center 2016 SP3 Release Information

  • Content Manager (formerly Architect)
  • MSXML4 dependency is removed from the code base and replaced by MSXML6 [TS-11956|TS-9494]
    • Classic .ASP files, .VBS files and COM+ DLLs are modified. Typically “MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0” became “MSXML2.DOMDocument.6.0” with extra configuration for optional resolveExternals or validateOnParse properties where required.
    • Note that we had to break COM+ DLLs binary compatibility. This should however not be an issue as you are not allowed to use this interface anymore since we introduced all .NET interfaces in 2014SP1/11.0.1.
    • ConvertStyles.bat implementation changed from “MSXSL.EXE” to “xslTransform.vbs”
    • Obsolete pages regarding IndexTerms and ClassicASP implementation of PreviewExternal are removed
    • Unfortunately typical custom files like Rep*Dlg.asp are also changed. So in other words, you also need to remove the MSXML4 dependency for your custom pages!
  •  “States” became “Statuses” as requested by Training department
  • Web Client improvements to allow IMetadataBinding integration in Find New Publications (SearchNewPublications.asp) [TS-11701|TS-11624|SRQ-5363]
  • Web Client - Search - Date picker don't work after adding/enabling metadatabound fields for the search screen [TS-11743|TS-11590]
  • MetadataConfig.xml changed to match Dynamic Title resolving paradigm. A drag-n-drop operation in Publication Manager still filled the <navtitle> attribute with the FTITLE value while it should be empty [TS-11798]
  • Web Client Checkout action to open Content Editor no longer asked to create a new version when the requested content object was already (R)eleased [TS-12006|]
  • Web Client – Topics cannot be opened in Content Editor when the Repository Tab is hidden [TS-11984|TS-11985|SRQ-5713]
  • TranslationOrganizer - Fill columns error/externalStatus on TranslationJobItems to allow easier integration debugging. Available in the database and over the Web Services API. [TS-11588|TS-10305|TS-11557|TS-10304]
  • TranslationOrganizer – Print status/workflow detection in the log files to help identify wrong initial or final status like ‘In Translation’ [TS-11567]
  • Java JDK/JRE 1.8.0_112 certification [TS-11975|TS-11993]
  • Improved recovery for IIS Application Pools that failed to re-initialize because the database was unavailable during their first initialize attempt. [TS-12134|TS-12157|SRQ-6051]
  • Don't log method enter/exit or anything from Trisoft.InfoShare.COMAPI to avoid NLOG deadlocks [TS-12034]
